Baked Fried Chicken

G and I eat alot of chicken. Alot alot. 
I also use Pinterest alot. Alot alot. 
{I know babe, alot is not a word!}

Combine the two and, BAM!, you get Baked Fried Chicken. 

When I first stumbled upon this recipe, I mistakenly thought this was a healthier version of fried chicken. I was wrong. So, if you, like me, thought this was going to be a healthier version of fried chicken, go home, you're drunk! {I know you probably aren't actually drunk. That was just my way of saying this isn't a healthy alternative to fried chicken.}

What you need:

Chicken Breasts, thawed {1 makes 2-3 chicken strips}
1/2 Stick Butter

Mix in a gallon sized Ziploc bag:

1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Season All
3/4 Teaspoon Pepper
1 Cup Flour
2 Teaspoons Paprika

What to do:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice thawed chicken breasts into strips. Place strips in a bowl and cover with milk. Let soak 15 to 20 minutes.

 2. Cut up 1/2 stick of butter into squares and place them in the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Melt butter in preheated oven. Spread melted butter around pan.

3. Shake off excess milk from strips and place them in the Ziploc bag. Shake until well coated. Place coated strips into pan.

4. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes. Flip strips over and cook another 20 minutes.

Original recipe here.

This recipe is so easy and makes such delicious chicken strips. I have made this 3 times since I found the recipe! I serve them with gravy and macaroni and cheese. : )

Looking forward to catching up on y'all's weekends!



  1. Er. Mah. Gerd. These look DEEEEEEE-LISH!!!!

  2. OMG! Are you trying to get me to attempt to jump through the screen? SERIOUSLY? This looks amazing! I am making this ASAP!

  3. I made this earlier this year and mine did NOT turn out this good! Maybe I'll just have to try it again. They were a huge soggy mess and all the coating fell off.

    We need to share recipes! I cook chicken 3 (sometimes more!) times a week. I'm running out of ideas!!

  4. Oh my gosh those look DELICIOUS! I'm terrible at frying chicken because I never can get it to cook all the way through without burning the outside. I'm definitely going to try this recipe next time!

    1. We are the same way, it's hard to get that perfect balance! And there is nothing more nasty than biting into a piece of chicken to find out that it's not cooked all the way!

  5. I don't like fried chicken cause of all the grease but baked fried chicken sounds fabulous!

  6. This sounds like an amazing recipe! I know what is on my menu this week :)

  12. YUM! These look amazing!!! I loooove chicken...Z is more of a beef guy (surprise, surprise) but he'll eat the occasional chicken if it's nice and crusted...these look perfect! Gonna try this when I finally get around to cooking again (which may never happen....). Hope y'all have a had a great visit with your rents! Can't wait to hear all about it!!
